Sherwin Williams Color of the Year! 2014 {Exclusive Plum}


Sherwin Williams has introduced their new 2014 Color of the Year! It’s a dusky shade of purple called Exclusive Plum. This color is a favorite of mine to use as the backdrop for my designs. It’s subdued enough to work well as a neutral yet lively enough to give the walls character.  Sherwin Williams recommends pairing it with a magenta or chartreuse to energize your room. (They had me at chartreuse). I especially like it when paired with black and white accents. I can’t wait to explore this color in more detail. So, keep your eye out for new paint palettes inspired by ‘Exclusive Plum’!

What do you think of the  Sherwin William’s 2014 Color of the Year? Do you see yourself including ‘Exclusive Plum’ in your future design projects?

Pillow Sets {Royal Bouquet Medley}


I love this bouquet design from Renee Landry. It’s such a beautiful collection of textures and colors. And, the dark blue dresses make the perfect backdrop to showcase this color combo. So, this got me thinking. Wouldn’t it be great to capture this ‘look’ with a throw pillow arrangement? I would start off with a generous pile of deep blue pillows as the base. Then, strategically place a few white pillows with various patterns and colors to mimic the bouquet. What do you think?
